Deviled eggs are a popular low carb party food offering, and there are so many ways to make them! I decided to try them with a Mexican twist – and I have to say that they taste fantastic!
Hard boil the eggs and leave to cool. I always use my simple-yet-effective egg timer and they come out perfect every time! Peel the eggs, slice in half lengthways, and scoop out the yolk into a bowl, and place the egg whites onto a baking tray lined with a silicone mat (I received this quarter size one for Christmas and love it!).
To the egg yolks add salsa, onion powder, mayonnaise and chipotle powder. If you don’t like chipotle you can substitute with paprika. Taste for seasoning and add salt and pepper as necessary.
Spoon the mixture into a plastic bag, squish it into one corner and snip off the end. Pipe it into back into the egg white cavities.
Sprinkle with cheese and diced pickled jalapenos. Place under the broiler for just a minute or two until the cheese starts to brown. Sprinkle with a little extra chipotle powder (or paprika) and serve warm if possible (you can use one of those fancy platters if you have one!) – your guests will wolf these huevos rancheros deviled eggs down within seconds!
